Getting to Elrond 3rd age/character swap problem

I'm trying to get to Elrond (Third Age) in Rivendell. I've got up to the hobbit hole which has two leaves at the opening, using Legolas. How do I get a hobbit up there to go through it? If I select one of the hobbits it just jumps to one of them at the bottom of that area, rather than change Legolas to Hobbit.

You could change Legolas to either Gimli or Gollum and it shouldn't swap to your other character. It can be quite annoying if you forget after you've climbed up high somewhere (like isengard tower) only to choose a hobbit by mistake and it switches to your character on the floor and by the time you have changed back to the other character he has jumped back down to the floor.

That's the problem, only Legolas can use the arrow slots he's fired arrows into, to get up there. The hobbits or Gimli can't grab onto them to get up there and I can't find any other way up.

I had the same problem with when trying to change legolas to a dwark but I changed to Gollum and got through ok

FYI Any character can use poles if they are wearing the mithril gloves (well except Gollum who is inept with item use lol) so you would get a hobbit up they by that method

The way I did it was plug a second controller in and made sure I didn't pick the same hobbit as the 2nd player

I'm guessing it's because you can't free play in middle earth until you complete all the chapters, which I just found out.
But if I had the gloves, as suggested above, I'd try that.

Correct, you can't switch between the full character list until after you have beaten Story Mode. What's the rush to try and unlock things before beating the story line anyway? Half of the things are blocked by things you can't open until near the end anyway.
